Are you considering getting a divorce? At Bergermann Law Firm we are here to support you and provide you with expert legal advice every step of the way. Divorce is a profoundly personal journey, often fraught with challenges, and you may be thinking about it for a variety of reasons. Whether it’s irreconcilable differences, breakdowns in communication, or other significant life changes, the realization that your marriage is no longer sustainable can be difficult to navigate alone. If your efforts to salvage your relationship have been unsuccessful, now might be the right time to seek guidance from our experienced divorce lawyers. Dividing your household, property, and financial assets is challenging both financially and emotionally. Florida is an equitable distribution state which means the court will divide your property in a manner it deems fair, which may not always result in a 50/50 split. We passionately advocate for our clients, working to identify workable compromises to these difficult problems. We will help you find solutions through negotiation, mediation, a collaborative approach, or court litigation if necessary. In our experience, we’ve found that every divorce is unique. There are crucial matters to address, such as dividing assets, determining spousal support, arranging child custody parenting plans, and establishing child support. Our team of seasoned divorce attorneys is devoted to assisting you through every phase of this process, offering valuable legal advice and staunchly advocating for your needs. We grasp the intricacies and emotional sensitivities inherent in divorce proceedings and are unwaveringly dedicated to securing fair and just outcomes for you.
You may be on an emotional roller coaster right now, and in danger of saying or doing the wrong thing, which will jeopardize your future options, possibly putting your livelihood or relationship with your children in danger. Having us as trusted allies by your side during these negotiations is essential for your future. As we develop your case, our priority is to provide you with thoughtful and comprehensive legal guidance. Drawing from our past experiences and extensive resources, we’re committed to helping you navigate the complexities of the legal system effectively providing solutions for: 
  • Filing for divorce, separation proceedings, and temporary orders
  • Division of marital property
  • What to do with the marital residence
  • Spousal support (alimony) if applicable
  • Custody, parenting plans and child support
  • Prenuptial agreements or separate property
While divorce can seem complex, ultimately, we see divorce as a series of problems to be solved and crucial decisions to be made. For you, because it involves your children, money and property, divorce can be highly emotional and seem legally complicated. However, we are committed to providing you with clarity and guidance to empower you in finding creative compromises. Through our dedication, we aim to secure a fair settlement that prioritizes your financial stability and preserves your relationship with your children. With our support, we strive to navigate the complexities of divorce, ensuring you emerge with a resolution that aligns with your needs with your dignity still intact.
Vera Bergermann, Esq. Bergermann Law Firm

I’ve been a lawyer for more than 30 years, but it might interest you more to know that I’m also a divorcé. Because I’ve had personal experience going through a divorce, and as a parent, also with child custody parenting plans, it shapes my approach to family law. I’ve been there so I can be empathetic to your viewpoints. I’m able to help you thoroughly understand the divorce process to see things practically and realistically. I will provide workable compromises to some of the difficult issues that come up in divorce. I am good at making legal issues clear and explaining proceedings in plain language so you can understand the costs, risks and expectations associated with divorce and other family law matters. Then we can come up with a plan together for whatever direction you want to take whether that’s mediation, collaborative divorce, direct negotiation or court litigation. — Vera Bergermann

Anna Paula | Cape Coral, FL

Vera took over my case as my previous attorney was not reliable. Even though it was about half way through, she calmed all parties down, brought resolution quickly and efficiently, always answered my emails and returned my phone calls, and I can't thank her enough for everything she did.
